delpo even in his current state is a much better mover and will destroy berdych, you heard it here first.

Agree that Berdych is the favorite ATM but Delpo has a great chance to reach an ATP 500 final here. Of the two, I give Berdych the better chance of defeating Feds in the final though.

Heart says Delpo, but got a feeling that Berdych may well take this one.

Delpo didn't really convince me yesterday against lowly Beck, and although he was better today Troicki was a massive contributing factor to the scoreline being as one sided as it was.

Hope for an entertaining match either way.

What's their head to head?

I'm just going to go with Berdy, as he's won a tourney recently and Juan hasn't won anything in a long time.

Their H2H is 2-1 in favor of Juan, but their last matches were in 2009 (obviously Juan's best and certainly not Tomas's best). In all 3 of their matches, the winner has won in straight sets. So the winner of the first set tomorrow is certainly poised to win the match, based on their history.

This is a big match for both guys. Not just for points, but for mental state. And then if the winner beats Federer, that's 500 points and a big time MTF hype machine.
